Flow-Blockchain from Dapper Labs comes one step closer to the Mainnet launch
Dapper Labs‘ long awaited block chain platform is getting closer and closer to its launch.
Flow, the blockchain platform from Dapper Labs, the developers behind the crypto-games Cryptokitties and NBA Topshot, may now have taken another step towards launching its own mainnet. This step by Bitcoin Surpreme is the release of Flow Port, a tool that allows token owners to manage and store their crypto funds on Flow.
The accompanying communication explicitly addresses how crypto users can stack their FLOW tokens via crypto custodians such as Kraken and Coinlist, and how they can hand over their tokens to existing node operators. However, those users who wish to operate their own node will have to undergo a review process, which may take longer as there is already a long waiting list of candidates.
Flow users to work directly
Another interesting aspect of the announcement is that the large crypto-wallet ledger will also be supported. This allows Flow users to work directly with Flow Port via the ledger hardware wallets. The new wallet provider Blocto will also offer this.
In a statement to Cointelegraph, Dapper Labs CEO Roham Gharegozlou explains that the new „portal“ opens up a range of possibilities for crypto users who want to use the Blockchain network.
„With Flow Ports, anyone can set up flow accounts with multiple custodians, including the Ledger hardware wallets and the Blotco software wallets,“ the CEO said. He then adds: „Community stakeholders can use Port to manage their flow tokens, stake them for nodes or hand them over to one of the 300 existing nodes that will be put into operation once staking starts. These include nodes from major partners such as Samsung, Ubisoft and T-Systems“.
The introduction of Layer-One Blockchain Flow is eagerly awaited by many crypto users. Accordingly, Dapper is working flat out on several fronts in preparation.
An important part of these efforts is the intensive capital procurement, through which, among others, money from hedge funds and NBA players could be collected. In addition, the Binance Stablecoin BUSD was integrated and in an auction process the value of the company’s own flow token was increased fourfold.
